my fellow penguins,
sorry i have not posted much lately. I have been in a crappy mood due to work and house problems (leaky roof, 2 busted pipes) I didnt want to play the poor me card when my stuff is pretty minor in the big picture of life. anyways, I hope to post something short in here on sunday about my first marathon.
other racers - good luck.
I hope everybody has a great weekend. I get to spend 5 hours running with my two sisters and it should be fun.

T-Rod, troubles are troubles. Hope yours clear up quickly, and have fun at your marathon!!
When it's all said and done, no one remembers how far we have run. The only thing that matters is how we have loved.
running is my prozac
Tomas good luck on your FIRST marathon! Can't wait to hear about it!
Good luck Tomas on your marathon!!! And to all who are racing this weekend!

I agree, SheCan, kilts are hot on the ladies. I think you should post your photo wearing one.
Scotty, I don't have one, otherwise I would. I'll be sure and get one before our Penguin Party at the Poconos. :-)
Tomas, best of luck with your marathon on Sunday! (And marathon week moods tend to be touchy. Hopefully, things will seem better after your race.)
All young people feel boxed in, but what you do with the wiggle room that you have, will define who you become.

Slight tickle in my throat. I'm just going to rest tonight, and hope this passes. I have a pretty good immune system when I play it smart.

URD again yesterday, gotta stop that!
8 miles done this evening.
Long run tomorrow, looking forward to it. I'm going to be on an aircraft carrier all next week, so I'll be treadmilling it, gotta go enjoy some scenery while I can. Gonna do 16 tomorrow on the Dismal Swamp trail (don't let the name fool ya, it's nice lol), and then some miles on Sunday at the trail by the lake. Weather is supposed to perfect all weekend!
Good luck Tomas!

My highest is 41 but that are all easy miles.. Will see how my body react to 43M next week and adjust.. DS is having fever again.. hmm.. He had Pneumococcal vaccine last weekend and he didn't had any fever.. Maybe a slight one at 37.3.. But yday, he had one at 39.3.. He's still active and alert so DW and myself are not overly worried but we are closely monitoring it.. Luckily, his fever subsided now..

Bin, sometimes they open up the flight deck or hangar bay for jogging, but you have to be really careful, it's covered with a coating called nonskid, for traction, it's like super rough sandpaper. So if you fall, you're gonna lose some skin. But when you're out on a deployment, it's nice to get off the treadmill and get some fresh air. Luckily I'll only be there for six days, so the treadmill will be fine. What's really fun is when the seas are rough and the ship starts rocking, then depending on which way the treadmill is oriented, you're either getting thrown from side to side, or you get some cool uphill/downhill action. lol
Tomas- Good luck to you!
D2- The rocking ship is one way to keep those hip openers working during your run too! Hope your week goes well.
Bin- Pfitz was kicking my butt last week too. This week has been much better, but we'll see how the LR goes.
